Good thing he was using a HANS device. He probably wouldn't have walked away without it.

I wouldn't doubt that Nicken has spares of everything for his buggy. He's got some major air miles on that thing. Awesome Buggy it is!

Considering he even machined the shocks himself, you're probably right.

I do wonder what might have happened if the steering had been straighter or even the opposite direction a little. The way he landed with the fornt tire steered to the right (his right) made it tear over the tire more as it was near sideways (the tire) on impact.

Had it been straighter he might have just dug the nose in.

As alwasy he is raising the bar.

I would guess him to have it repaired very soon as well being he makes so much of it himself and impeccably.
